Ukrainian Chicken Kiev

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
William, you have a really good personal recipe here! Thanks for sharing it! I don't keep bread crumbs on hand because I prefer the lighter, crispier Panko crumbs so used them instead. I also sprinkled one tablespoon of Panko on each piece of butter just before rolling the chicken to add more depth in the center. I am with others who are disgusted at the juvenile comments being left here! For those who mentioned the chicken being dry either the oil was probably not the right temperature and/or was over cooked. One other possibility is that they're simply not a white meat lover (white meat generally is on the dryer side) so just use chicken thigh meat instead.

Backyard Cooper Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
Your recipe is awesome and a five star as is! However, I can't help tweak a recipe to my liking but the only true change I made with your recipe was to use 1/3 heaping cup fresh finely shredded parmesan. I know garlic powder and onion powder is easier but I took the extra effort for the fresh equivalents (3 tbsp plus 1 tsp minced garlic and 1 heaping tbsp fresh minced onion). I also made the entire five pounds and simply placed wax paper between the many extra uncooked patties, placed them in a zip lock bag and froze them for future use ;-)

Pan-Fried Asparagus with Onions

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
Five star for a very good quick and easy basic recipe! I wasn't in the mood for the butter flavor so used extra virgin olive oil instead. Also, used a sweet red onion because that's what I had on hand and it turned out great because the sweeter flavor was divine! Didn't use any seasoning because decided ahead of time to serve garnished with fresh finely shredded parmesan and sliced (julienne style) pre-cooked pancetta instead.

Caprese Burger

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Delizioso!!! . I find your recipe absolutely delightful! I used your suggestion of substituting basil pesto for the basil, parmesan and garlic mixture, another reviewer suggestion of using sun dried tomatoes in lieu of tomato paste and yet another suggestion by another reviewer of using Ciabatta bread which I brushed with a bit of garlic infused extra virgin olive oil and lightly toasted.

Japanese Style Deep Fried Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2013
Oh my goodness!! No words of praise are enough!! Don't forget to also deep fry some veggies to go along with the shrimp!! I sliced part of a zucchini 1/4 inch thick and peeled and sliced part of a sweet potato 1/4 inch thick and also used a few snow peas; of course you'll need to use more batter and egg accordingly. I suggest dredging the veggies before the shrimp (for bacteria reasons). I cheated and used Kikkoman Tempura Dipping sauce - Yum!! Oh, and the veggies took between 3 - 4 minutes to fry to be 'just tender'.

Sliced Tomatoes with Fresh Herb Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2014
Made as written (except did not chill to marinate) and love the combination of these flavors but next time will add a bit of red wine vinegar and use roasted garlic simply because I love their flavors :-) For those who are raw garlic shy/think it is too overpowering I plead with you to try roasted garlic with this recipe - YUM! Also, regarding chilling the tomatoes, please know you can safely marinate them, covered, at room temperature for up to four hours and then chill any leftovers for use in a salad the next day.

Mindy's Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2013
I really enjoyed this mac salad which has a nice balance of ingredients and ingredient amounts! Because of personal flavor preferences (don't care for too sweet) I substituted the sweet Gherkin with a dill pickle and used mayonaisse instead of the creamy dressing/miracle whip.

Quick Taco Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Ahhh, someone after my own heart! Have done this since I moved away from home four decades ago with leftovers from Build Your Own Taco meals. Many who I serve to don't like taco seasoning so opt to use plain ground meat instead. Besides ground beef or chicken try pork because it's tasty too. And simply 'must' add diced avocado that has been tossed in lemon or lime juice and some fresh chopped cilantro to the ingredient list too

Bacon Wrapped New Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
I made a simple change with the Ranch mix which added more Ranch flavor to the potatoes themselves rather than mainly flavoring the bacon. I poked the skins of freshly washed red potatoes really well, sprinkled the Ranch mix to taste directly on the still damp skins so the flavor would soak directly in to the potatoes and then wrapped with the bacon. Thank you for a fun and tasty recipe!

Asian Style Paper Wrapped Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
A fun and tasty treat! I found the paper packets for this dish at a local mom and pop Asian market and fried half in foil packets and half in paper packets in a wok. Using either type of packet worked great. The presentation was prettier with the paper but the fun part about the foil was the mystery of not being able to see what was in the packets. One thing I would suggest, Sean, is to add one teaspoon of sesame oil to the ingredient list. Searched online for photos (my camera was out of batteries) and added a couple here so viewers know what the completed foil and paper packets look like. Next time I make these am going to try it with my Yakitori Tare marinade simply to taste the difference between them being fried versus grilled on a skewer. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Parmesan Baskets

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
I make parmesan crisps all the time but it never occurred to me to take one more step and form them into little bowls and fill with your favorite choice of goodies! Thanks so much for the idea!

Fried Asparagus Sticks

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
I love your idea of using lemon zest and double coating the asparagus! Might I suggest placing the seasonings in the flour instead of the buttermilk because most of the seasoning will simply drip off before being rolled in the flour otherwise. If it's in the flour it will stick.

Mary Pickford

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
This is a super yummy olden golden day's cocktail which was created for her after Prohibition when she had become a prolific imbiber of alcoholic beverages. It was created by bartender Eddie Woelke, an American who left to set up shop in Havana, Cuba. Woelke also invented the drink 'El Presidente'. Mary Pickford actually had other cocktails named after her. One is the still well known cocktail, the 'Bloody Mary', which is thought to have been created by bartender Fernand Petiot of The St Regents Hotel in New York. Two all but forgotten cocktails are 'Romana' and ' Rosita' named after film characters that Mary Pickford played.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2013
Am not a balsamic vinegar fan so used red wine vinegar instead. Very happy with this marinade for both steak and chicken. Make a note to yourself regarding discarding leftover marinade: Instead of being wasteful simply cook it in a small saucepan at a slow rolling boil for five minutes and use it to flavor pasta or rice ;-)

Birdman's Caesar Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
I have a recipe very similar to yours here so I can tell that when I give yours a try I'll like it :-) For those worried about using raw eggs you can use one tablespoon of mayonnaise per egg as a substitute or two to make the dressing creamier. I suggest using a good quality mayo because otherwise the flavor will be 'off'.

Simple Cream Cheese and Ham Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2013
Wanted something with a little pizzaz for my bagels this morning instead of the usual plain cream cheese so decided to give this a try. I was not disappointed :-) One thing about turmeric is that the amount used in prepared mustards barely affects the mustard flavor but rather is used for its yellow color; it's the color of the seed used that affects the flavor so just use your favorite prepared mustard. My favorite is Grey Poupon Dijon so that is what I used. If you want more 'heat' then my all means use English mustard called for in this recipe or mix Colman's powder with equal amounts of water but add it to taste because Colman's is 'very' hot ;-)

Rum-beer Float

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2013
This recipe came in my inbox last night (Friday) and it was perfect timing to try because a couple of friends were over for a movie ;-) I didn't have root beer and spiced rum on hand but did have cherry cola, Bacardi Gold and French vanilla ice cream so gave that a try. YUM! Thank you so much for the fun, tasty idea and am now going to experiment with assorted soda and rum flavor combinations and, of course, with root beer!!

Panzanella Panini

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
These are absolutly scrumptous sandwiches! Going to try your version with the French deli roll. Would be a nice change from a thin sourdough bread. I should mention that panzanella and panini is on the redundant side. Caprese Panini would be a better title explanation ;-)

Delish Black Mission Figs!

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
The addition of prosciutto sounds wonderful! Being that my paternal grampa was from Greece I highly recommend trying this recipe with Feta instead of goat cheese ;-) They taste awesome grilled too! One more tip for those who might like to try an additional flavoring is to whisk together an equal amount of honey and red wine vinegar for drizzling.
